Bitnami Releases Two Amazon RDS Offerings!

Bitnami, one of the leading providers of open source software in the AWS Marketplace, is excited to announce two new offerings using Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Wordpress Multi-Tier with Amazon RDS for MariaDB and Redmine Multi-Tier with Amazon RDS for MariaDB. Wordpress, a popular Content Management System (CMS) and Redmine, a flexible and richly configurable project management platform, are excellent additions to any business’ needs in the cloud. 

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while managing time-consuming database administration tasks, freeing you up to focus on your applications and business.  With Amazon RDS, you can deploy a scalable MariaDB database, a popular open source relational database created by the original developers of MySQL.

Tighter integration with Amazon’s managed database offering in the cloud allows customers to take advantage of that same value with the expertise of Amazon Web Services managing the infrastructure for critical data in the cloud. These two new offerings use Amazon CloudFormation Templates created by Bitnami to orchestrate the application’s resources for the deployment. Users will be able to configure architecture suited to their needs and launch an environment into their AWS Account. All of the data required to get up and running will be pre-populated and ready for use upon deployment. 

Bitnami’s applications are trusted for their ability to provide the most up-to-date and patched versions of popular open source applications, consistently and expediently after release.  Using Bitnami’s Cloud Formation Templates allows customers to receive all of these Bitnami benefits while also being able to have an environment that incorporates the scalability and ease of use of Cloud Formation Templates.

Bitnami is excited to deepen our partnership with Amazon Web Services and our customers through the AWS Marketplace. We look forward to continuing to provide more value for our users and receiving your feedback on these applications. Please reach out to us directly if you have any requests or would like to see your applications available with Amazon RDS. You can reach out to us at enterprise@bitnami.com.
